Book Description:Once he was AndrĂ©-Louis Moreau, a lawyer raised by nobility, unconcerned with the growing discontent among Franceâ€™s lower classâ€”until his best friend is mercilessly struck down by a member of the aristocracy. Now, he is Scaramouche. Speaking out against the unjust French Government, he takes refuge with a nomadic band of acting improvisers where he assumes the role of Scaramouche The Clownâ€”a comic figure with a very serious message... Set during the French Revolution, this novel of swashbuckling romance is also a thought-provoking commentary on class, inequality, and the individualâ€™s role in societyâ€”a story that has become Rafael Sabatiniâ€™s enduring legacy.
